Middle East Talents Awards team has served as an inspiration to all digital artists not only in the Gulf region but in other countries as well. Since the first launch of META up to now, we are more amazed to receive amazing and stunning work of arts. You, digital artists are our inspiration.
Mohammadreza Mohseni, a freelance artist and Founder of Arayeh Studio from Iran won in Motivational still category. Some of his top skills are architectural design, 3D visualization, 3D rendering, 3D modeling, V-ray, Corona and more. Let’s get to know more of Mohammadreza and his winning piece “Dusk Empty Sidewalk” through this short interview:
- What is your inspiration to make the winning piece?
“Dark Interior” is one of my interior designs in my architectural firm and I was aiming for an interior with dark material but full of textures. I was inspired by industrial lofts at that moment but “Dusk Empty Sidewalk” is more personal and more touching for me by far. I have done that piece by the influence of my heartbreak and my sadness of those times. I wanted to make a piece of art that anybody can understand my sadness and loneliness in a spectacular space at first sight.”
- What are the challenges and experiences you faced during the making of your artwork?
“Every time that I started working, I’m forcing myself to do a challenge even if the work is not challenging. I usually forced myself to do materials in a way that I am not experienced before or used a new technique to make myself improve even when working for a client so I think for me the materials and shaders are the most challenging part in every artwork.”
- Of all the digital arts you created, which one are you most proud of apart from your winning piece in META and why?
“They are all like my children. It is very hard to select between them but if I must choose “Frantic Perception” is my choice (besides the “Dusk Empty Sidewalk”) because of the aesthetic aspect of it.”
- What is your goal?
“I want to reach higher level every year in my work and I want to work at one of the most respected studios in the world.”
- Please share a short message to the young artists who want to pursue their dreams in digital arts.
“The most important sentence that came to my mind everyday “BE ALWAYS CREATIVE. THINK ALWAYS BEFORE ACT.”
